Abstract:

Womens entrance into the National Guard in 1950 was an historic moment in Americas military history. From that moment on, women have been instrumental in building the National Guard into what it is today a ready, accessible, and capable force that is an invaluable combat reserve for the active Army and Air Force. Women in the National Guard are essential to defending the nation, supporting our communities, and building partnership capacity. They exemplify our governments commitment to integrating women into defense, development, and diplomatic efforts.
